The Edge Effect – Diversity and Creativity
January 10, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Ecologically speaking, the edge effect results in greater diversity of life in a region where the edges of two adjacent ecosystems overlap, but social scientists also propose that the edge effect can help cultivate creativity in people who are exposed to different cultures. The edge effect may have been at play when some of our most revolutionary thinkers had creative breakthroughs, possibly even when Felix Adler founded Ethical Culture. Join Emerging Leader Louise Jett as she explores diversity and creativity during her talk on the edge effect.
